When life gives you lemons....

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Well, what do you do if life gives you shit? NO, you don't make shit-n-ade. When life gives you shit, you SIT AND KNIT! and knit. and knit. and knit.

Life is very, very good. But there's a LOT of extra stress going on. Thank God for family, friends (here in person and on the innernets) and thank GOD for knitting. It's helped me through so many tough times in my life. I can't tell you how much knitting has been done in hospitals (our family is accident prone AND having a son with CF - cystic fibrosis- means lots and lots of time spent sitting, waiting and worrying.)

It'll all work out for the best, I have no doubt. I've just got to make it through the next couple of weeks and not lose my freaking mind. :) No problem, right?

My project of choice right now is good old garter stitch. Knit, knit, knit, knit, knit. It's soothing, comforting and MAN do I love garter stitch projects. They're squooshy, have good texture and make lovely projects. My project? Another square of my Itty Bitty Sockyarn Bits Blanket (free pattern link on ravelry).
